School district awarded funds from former employee’s estate

KSAL StaffNovember 6, 2016

A Kansas school district has recovered nearly half a million dollars from the estate of a former technology director who’s believed to have embezzled district money before killing himself.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2fkXcwZ) reports a federal judge has awarded the Maize school district roughly $490,000 from Ramon Mosate’s estate. Mosate worked for the district from 1997 until he was fired in February 2015, three months after the FBI executed a search warrant at district headquarters.

An FBI affidavit chronicled years of money transfers and cash payments between Mosate and vendors who were paid more than $4 million for technology-related services.

Maize superintendent Chad Higgins told school employees the award didn’t cover all of what the district lost, but it was positive news at a time of uncertainty on school funding.
